Getting Links to Open in new window

Post by Bradley_Wint »

Well last night I finally installed the RC1 edition and realised that when I post pics of images linked to the bigger image, it opens in the same window unlike other forums, which when you click, opens a new browser window to display the image. What do I need to do to get the forum to open external links and so on in new windows?

Thanks.

The DTD used by phpBB3 to render the XHTML is 1.0 Strict which doesn't support the target attibute in links required to open links in new windows.

users can always right click, and if your not bothered about XHTML Strict you can easily change this :)
All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

Ok, it's not a mod (I don't know how to do it) but this a little something that I've made...

I'll be honest, I'm stuck on this one. Not sure whether to convert my old board to RC1 and accept that links no longer open in new windows, or go with various "fixes" that are suggested. Maybe a proper mod will come along soon?

What do other people think on this? Probably best if we all work in a similar way, otherwise people using several forums won't know if they are coming or going!
